>> despite the booze, a-rod hit a single. thanks for being with us tonight. see you again tomorrow night. go to a lot happening. good night from washington. good night from washington. guilffoyld and bob beckel and she naps on the deck of her malibu barbie dream house with dana perino. it is 5:00 and we are open for business. 20 embassies across the globe are closed this weekend due to terror chatter. well, not really across the globe, in certain parts of the globe. let me put it this way, if you are anywhere christians are welcome, you are okay. so they are closed for fear of attack, what movie is responsible for this? shark nato? "smores 2"? -- "smores 2"?
11:01 pm
but they don't just raise questions, they also raise the dead. i thought al-qaeda was deceased. now i realize it is the paul mccartney of terror groups and their death was a hoax. if al-qaeda is no longer a serious threat what constitutes a serious one? this? these? this? if al-qaeda was no longer a threat anthony wiener was no longer a perv. i am not making light of this. i never thought al-qaeda was dead and i wish valerie jarod -- i mean president obama was right the first time. but the scary part report really the threats, but that officials say our response to the threats is a lesson learned from benghazi. the lesson is close up shop because we can't protect you. that's no lesson. either you bolster security or you get the hell out of the hell holes, but you don't close up shop. sooner or later the sign in the door will go from closed to open and evil will return. it won't be there asking for
11:02 pm
directions. so, kimberly, you look delightful in green. they will be closed until next saturday. at some point they have to reopen. what do you do? >> people feel insecure about the united states being able to protect them and they close up shop. they try to figure something out or the chatter stops. that's when you will be at your most vulnerable. as soon as we open back up, that's when we will get hit. there has been a little activity in terms of predator strikes, but no major casualties from that of any of the known leaders. hopefully we have developed some of the target lists and getting more information and some people need to be taken out probably immediately. >> jesse, the intel community think they disclose too much information. do you think that is true? >> i do. i think when you a that the intelligence came from yemen and that it was specifically targeted for a specific period of time, and
11:03 pm
this goes back to a lot of the other things the administration has leaked. the virus with the israeli attack on the iranian nuclear program and what they leaked about the bin laden raid. i don't know why the administration is saying all of these specific things because now all of the resources that we have and all of the people that we have gathered the intelligence from in these dangerous countries, why would they cooperate with us? >> they wouldn't. >> he makes a good point. 13 suspensions handed down and the hammer fell hardest on the highest paid player in baseball history. alex rodriguez who signed contracts worth more than 350 million in his c.reer. should president obama be impeached? >> i am drafting articles myself over the weekend. first of all, let me make a few comments. nsa picked up some chatter. it is about time they got back into the business they are supposed to be in. secondly, al-qaeda has made it a point for years now not to use cell phones phones and other communications. dana made a point that maybe they are desperate now. my guess is some of this may have been to throw us off. the third thing is if we he was suspended for games. yankees manager will speak and a-rod at 6:15. stay with fox news for the details. >> i would have suspended him for less. let me tell you why. i feel like after the strike what happened was the ratings were terrible in baseball and everybody started juicing and knocking home runs and they fell in love with the chase. they looked the other way
11:04 pm
hadn't closed the embassies and something happened, you would have been all over us as a result. the last thing i will say to you is embassies have been closed for the last 75 years as various circumstances have dictated. this may be more than most closures, but it goes back to teddy roosevelt. i would not consider this to be an american weakness. >> i agree. >> and the other thing is the yemens are not this rogue agent and our research here is while these guys were juicing up. barry bonds' head grew 12 inches. and then he wants to protect his legacy. the commissioner hillary tire soon so he wants to come down hard on these guys. he picks a villain, a-rod. no one likes him and doesn't have friends. cameron diaz feeds him popcorn in the stands. he kisses a mirror. he has two oil paintings hanging above his bed. he is not a likable guy. >> how do you know about his bed? >> a little birdie told me. clearly a guy who is upset in the right winger. >> it is like the bar scene and where they hang out. that's the deal. >> let me ask you. critics of the nsa would say this is really convenient for this to happen. while these programs are under fire and snowden is embarrassing us and now we can say look at all of this we uncuffed. uncovered. >> i am uncomfortable talking about intelligence things because in a previous life i would say we are not >> when you see a sped limit for 14 miles an hour, how did they get to 211? >> it is a season and a half. >> the world is plagued by guests who wouldn't leave. a-rod is the anthony wiener of baseball which is funny because his name is a-rod. you can't blame these guys. >> did you just say that? >> if you can take something that makes you better at your job, why not? do you know how bill hemmer
11:05 pm
commenting on this. now we have so much more information in the public. david sanger of the new york times wrote a piece yesterday in which he talked about there is too much classified information in the government. i think he is probably right. but something like this where you talk specifically about sources and methods and how people are communicating with one another, terrorists are communicating with one another, to me it does seem over broad. however, the threat to the -- to our libyan embassy was very specific. ambassador chris stevens sends looks so good? he injects live mice into his face. brian harvests his hair from poor children in india. >> what do you think about this? >> i think a-rod will try and milk this for as much as he can, but he has $120 million on the line if he sits out the rest of 2013 and all of 2014. he can be 40 and he is done and he won't have played for a year. >> i agree with jesse. a letter specifically saying we have a threat assessment on them bough see. that was a specific thing. i am fine if people learn lessons, that's okay. i am comfortable talking about sources and methods. i do think this is not a partisan issue. come play sen see is america's biggest enemy. al-qaeda knows that. and so if we have to be vigilant for -- vigilance doesn't stop after a month. an interesting thing from a foreign policy aspect is is i think he should be gone for life. bud selig should think of another line of work. jesse, it has been good to have you here. one more thing right now. ♪
11:06 pm
president obama responsible for al-qaeda's morphine and evolution? >> i don't know about that. >> maybe it is not. >> i know one of the reasons for the increased chatter here is a lot of these prisoners have escaped from where we have been holding them, and we have been releasing a lot of them. they had the abu ghraib released. and in afghanistan we have a program where we pay militants to leave the battlefield. they get to keep their guns. they just have to sign on the dotett line and we hillary integrate into the -- we will reintegrate into the community. >> on sundays everybody knows i like to watch the sunday shows. here is a mantage of the terror threat. >> is the threat to blowup an embassy, a consulate or something else? >> that part is unspecified. the intent seems clear. >> the intent is to what? >> it is to attack western and not just u.s. interests. >> this is an effort to
11:07 pm
terrorize us and to drive us out of the mideast. if we ever take the bait and try to create fortress america you will have another 9/11. >> this is one of the most specific threats i have seen since 9/11. >> this is a wake up call. al-qaeda is in many ways stronger than it was before 9/11. >> bob you just went -- >> the truth is the al-qaeda that orchestrated 9/11 has been december mated. decimated. the name has been inherited by a number of terrorist groups and so in fact it is alive and well if you want to call it, but it is not the same al-qaeda. by the way, releasing prisoners from guantanamo and other places went back from the bush administration to the obama administration. we have done it for perfectly legitimate reasons. there was over crowding down there, and they need to get them out. some did get back into the game. most of them did not. >> it drives me crazy. >> there was 30% raw --
11:08 pm
recedivism. >> what is the problem with the over crowding? you are prisoners. >> you are in a tropical paradise and you get to play soccer. >> the soccer is expense tiff. expensive. some of those people have provided and continue to provide as i understand it u.s. intelligence overseas where they went back home. >> kg, do you have a problem with bob? >> i do. love you, bob, however i have to take issue every time you say al-qaeda has been december mated, they -- decimated, they have not. they shape shift. the current leadership is all former exgitmo detainees that are now smarter, better and have more cash in their pockets and fostering new attacks. they have strong connections to pakistan. this is the new face of terror and they are bolder and stronger. to say we december -- decimated is to put us at an advantage and that is not an
11:09 pm
accurate statement. >> george bush kept a people on the cards. he got rid of virtually the entire top leadership of al-qaeda with the exception of osama bin laden who eventually was caught. >> now we agree. bring bush back. >> i don't see this as partisan. i am not making it partisan. >> you keep talking about the two presidents and this is america. if a come play sen see is our biggest enemy we should work together and say, look, do you trust the government, or do you not? skepticism is healthy in a these guys are outside and look what they are doing. democracy. every bit of skepticism they got today and for the administration was the same as the bush administration. i think that is probably a good thing. >> doesn't decimate mean you destroy everything but one-10th of one percent? >> i am not sure of the exact definition. >> can you get back to me 1234* we are talking talking about al-qaeda being decimated. >> there should be no doubt. they are thrusting their -- >> the american public does not know what you are talking about. but we will get his number. >> it is a dad and his boys. >> kimberly, you bring this out in all men. families of men. >> one more thing. >> so this is really great. this is the puertorican day parade in cleveland. you can see her there and she is truly the miracle of cleveland when she escaped and was so brave being held
11:10 pm
today america is stronger and al-qaeda is on the path to defeat. we decimated al-qaeda's leadership. >> al-qaeda is on the path to defeat and bin laden is dead. >> we december saw -- decimated al-qaeda central and eliminated osama bin laden. >> al-qaeda is much weaker than it was when i came into office. >> osama bin laden is dead and general motors is alive. >> the war in afghanistan is coming to a close. al-qaeda is on the path to defeat. osama bin laden is dead. >> today the core of al-qaeda captive by ariel castro. she was out there celebrating and people were waiving and it was a latino fest. they said it was inspirational that they are doing so well. she said our work is not done and we have more beautiful children who need our help. we need to keep our eyes and ears open. don't let the children go in vein which is an important meage and people held up posters and boards of the missing children. >> perino. >> one of the things you in afghanistan and pakistan is on the path to defeat. their remaining operatives spend time thinking about their own safety than plotting against us. >> pakistan where you get poke marks. >> if you notice they said al-qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan are on the run and he is exactly right. >> do you think that is the message they were trying to deliver from the white house to america during the 2012 election was they were being specific about al-qaeda and probably have been missing out on is your jasper update. >> why? >> do you want to see how this dog can jump into a pool? this was yesterday. we are going to enter the contest. >> i like how you ask america. >> america, do you want to see my dog jumping into the pool? >> like they have a choice. it is like you didn't even let them answer. most said no we are tired of your dog, dana. >> you are wrong. if we took a poll it would be like the old poll where 99% agree with me.
11:11 pm
pakistan? that's not what they meant at all. that's why they are in -- i support them. but when you start watering down the global war on terror for political reasons -- >> it is not a question of watering it down. is al-qaeda left in afghanistan? no. is it in pakistan? no. >> all of that stuff was the reason why they played down benghazi before the election. it was alive. it was well, and it is coming back. >> so there is no more terror? they have tenticles and now >> if i had a pole i would chase your dog with it. >> two married couples decided to handcuff themselves together for 48 hours. man, you talk about death penalty. they both, woulded for the colbert report and their names are mark and his wife kristine. they both said that after 48 hours they wanted some time apart. no kidding. think about this, how in the they have different names and different factions and they are still bold and operating to the point we consider it a credible threat. by the way, if i was an embassy i would say shut it down because i know no one is going to help me if i am getting attacked for self-hours even though they will get some help to get me out. >> you can play word games. they tried to sell us -- they were december mated -- decimated before the election. they are obviously not. they said the war on terror is over, and it is not. world did they do certain things? it must have been sort of >> terrible. >> well, you can guess where i am going with this. 48 hours changed to anybody -- chained to anybody would be tough unless it was beyonce. >> it is true though. i always think about the worst part of being a siamese twin. >> you know what i would do for a charity event, i would chain myself to bob for 48 hours. >> if i could raise money for a children's charity. i might chew my arm off, but other than that.
11:12 pm
we are closing a record amount of embassy -- embassies. susan rice, where is she? the last time i heard from hershey was holding meetings with john carey who was on his yacht the last time in egypt. and then james clapper, the director of national intelligence who lied to congress. it is a huge tri-fecta. the big speech he gave three months ago when he said the war on terror is over. >> that's what they call coyote ugly. >> jesse. >> so the k ng of the ring oprah winfrey has not weighed in on the trayvon martin and george zimmerman case so far until today. on "the today show" here is what she said. >> it is so easy during this time, trayvon martin parallel to emmitt till. in my mind, same thing. but you can get stuck in that >> technically he didn't say that. >> look it up. we will have it on tape for you when we come back. >> you are hoping. >> you said technically. is that the word? >> if you read between the lines which i know you can do, bob. i know you can do. he did say essentially the war on terror is over as we know it, and it is not. >> dana, now, what is the lesson? they said -- sources say officials have learned lessons from benghazi. is the lesson close the door? >> i don't know specifically what that lesson is. i do from a macro political and not allow yourself 20* move forward and to see how far we have come. >> so here is the deal for those of you who don't know who emmett till is. a 14-year-old black kid in mississippi, 1955 and flirted with a white woman and a few days later two white racists attacked him and shot him to death. now this is who she is comparing this to, trayvon martin. i feel like oprah diminished
11:13 pm
standpoint. i think it is key for the president of the united states to have to rally the nation when you are at war. war is tiring. america is tired of being at war. when people think of that it is specific to iraq and afghanistan. i understand that piece of it. the president has to rally and remind people that the vigilance is so important. on the nsa program in particular, if the communication between these two terrorists that lead us to information and said we had to shut something down, does that her brand here. it was a big missed opportunity for oprah winfrey. i was expecting her to take the high road and elevate the conversation and to bring the country forward and add a little unity here. instead she made this atrocious analogy and i am a little disappointed in oprah. >> that was an awesome chandelier. banned phrase. decimate. did we discuss this in the a block? i must have got 150 tweets not mean the nsa program is worth something and could someone in the administration besides general alexzander have to go out and try to defend it? we are trying to defend the president's use of a program that is very important. he won't even help us acknowledge it. acknowledge the importance. >> it is incredibly important. it intercepted overseas the people that were terrorist threats to the united states. >> how do you know? how do you know that the communication between these telling me exactly what decimate means and that the president was using it incorrectly. i disagree. he was using it correctly. to decimate is to kill every 10th man. so technically 90% of al-qaeda is still in operation. president obama is saying, yes, we have 10% and we have 90% left. that's all i want to do. >> technically that's what he meant. so stop using decimate. >> if we stop using the words you tell us not to use we can't talk anymore. >> i want to ban every word.

two phones didn't come through the united states? that's the only way you know -- see what i mean? they could be using the lone wolf terrorist in boston to communicate back and forth. we don't know. the nsa has lots of different numbers so they can try to find out what is going on. >> if we can believe peter king -- >> peter king has top secret clearance that is briefed by the calia. -- cia. >> he said it was chatter >> you have to get out of here. >> that's it for us on "the five." thanks for watching. see you tomorrow. "special report" is up next. it is great. welcome to "red eye." it is like dude where's my car if by car you mean my photo album with lo u-dabbs. within the peninsula. it was not chatter. >> how did you know? >> that's what he said. >> how do you know he is wrong? >> he said it. i will give him that. >> it goes to the same line. you can't find needles unless you have a hey stack. you need the grid to connect the dots. >> and you have to employ a lot of people to constantly be looking for the needles. it is expensive, but it is the most important thing we can do to protect ourselves. >> how long do you think we have to keep this going? >> forever. >> the thing is it is not the war specifically. it is a mind set from the i cried h nighs arms, don't you know. now to andy levy for a pre game report. andy, what is coming up on tonight's show? >> thanks, greg. our top story, anthony weaner and bob filner. we will check in on these two important members of president obama's party. and the suspension for alex rodriguez and 12 other players for using performance-enhancing drugs. we will update you on new developments and a sad situation unfolding on president obama's watch. and finally could the running of the

11:21 pm
the entitlement continues on and even under a government shutdown scenario it is not that simple and easy. >> the former south carolina senator who is now running the hair 10 foundation sees it this way. >> this may be the last opportunity to stop. it there is no republican i am aware of who wants to shut the government down. the whole point is we need to fund the government. we should not fund obamacare. >> i call on you. >> if it is not working i hillary lay the message. i think the organizers for president obama's birthday celebration on obamacare should have thought it throughment it was one of the most beautiful days weather wise. it is sunday in august before kids are going back to school. they don't want to go to an obamacare party to talk about how great it is. so they set themselves up for a pr failure there. every day you can find another person and another group,en tau see, union, whoever else it might be that are saying they don't like it.

in fact, the wall street journal said even 48% of the uninsured think it is bad policy. dl is a steep -- there is a steep upward hill to climb. i understand why there is the fight among -- or the disagreement among the republicans about strategy on how to go forward. i don't know how it will end. i am waiting for bob to bail me out. >> i will bail you out because ryan is right. when you talk about shutting down the government, are you talking about kiss creationary spending -- about discretionary spending. they are shutdown because they are discretionary. when they did this initially they opted out of social security, medicare, medic cade anden -- medicaid and entitlement. it is there. the question is are you going to be in a position politically to take iu apart. that means you need a republican president and a good majority -- you need a majority in the senate. i don't think it is going to happen. the question is are you going

it is not going to happen. what will happen might be a better strategy is to let this thing crumble under its own weight. once the fines come in and once young people -- >> you can delay -- if you push to delay the individual mandate, i think that could happen. >> now i would like to call on will im. >> i love the one person showing up for the obamacare event. she showed up thinking it was traffic school. the thing is, is it possible to actually shut it down. i don't think it is. the debate is a waste of time. it is like going to the gym and spending an hour doing yoga. all of that effort for no reward. i agree with jesse. i think you just let this thing implode. you can't keep feeding america poop and telling them it is godiva. that is what is happening with obamacare. it is not godiva. it is poop. we are living in a time when -- where celebrity opinions on health care are more respected and valued than doctors. real doctors hate this. but people who play doctors

tomorrow night president obama will sit down with jay leno for the 6th time. but times have changed his his last appearance in 2012. according to the center for media and public affairs, the president is now the top target for late night comedians. he has been the punch line for 288 jokes in the money log-in the -- monologs. >> people say hey, letterman. why don't you make jokes about obama? i don't make jokes about him because i don't want the fbi tapping my phone. that's why. >> i was going to start off with an obama joke, but i don't want to get audited by the irs. forget that. >> president obama was visiting a middle school and while there he said every school should have high speed internet. and then it got awkward when one kid said, what, so you can read our e-mail faster? >> the white house has a new slogan about benghazi, hope

and change the subject. thank you, move quickly. >> quite a change from the year before. the only person who comes close to that kind of ridicule is fellow democrat anthony wiener. >> your fellow? >> not my fellow by any stretch of the imagination. all of the late night hosts this year make fun of democrats more than republicans, but letterman still makes fun of republicans more. he is still stiff and radical. >> can i tell you something? the increase in obama jokes happened in the first half of the year after his final election when he cannot be elected anymore. they didn't want to be rude. they wanted to wait until it was an eight-year thing. none of the jokes were about obama. they were about the nsa and the irs. >> what is the case with these joke when's you have an election like this? it is a current affairs and every one of these stories lends itself to jokes. i am not surprised. you should add to that count

that greg gut fell has had him 384 times. >> remember, bob, when we went to the new york's funniest reporter event and the guy got up and he was the mimic and he could do everybody. he went through all of the presidents and he got to obama and he said i can't do obama's voice. that is balone. >> i am a decent mimic. >> i have heard it. >> do you actually think they held his powder and then all of a sudden they realize let's let this guy have it. do you think because wiener and benghazi and the irs and the nsa, he just gives him more material? >> i think the answer is yes, and yes. i think it is because he is second term. i think there is even more material now and so also there is jay leno who was one of the first to do that and make comments and make jokes that included obama.

his ratings have gone up by the way. >> he has wiener and spitzer now. what more can you ask for? >> i like jay leno. >> i know i law -- a lot of you beat me up about the lorain gnaw bob bit. >> what did you say? >> if "the five" is still on in four or five years. >> what do you mean if? >> we can do a segment if hillary clinton becomes president how late night talk show comedians will deal with that. it will be much more difficult for them to make fun of her. kimberly said something about me before the commercial -- in the commercial break that was so disturbing that i won't eat for three weeks. >> you can -- no what i said was they came up out with lip gloss. i said you look plump. and she goes, plump? >> on that note, major league
